The thrilling conclusion to NAHF's extended conversation with Twitter's BFF Josh Denny. Isaac, Charles, Josh, and Adi get to talking about the tweet that got Josh in so much hot water: what does it mean? What do people THINK it means? Does intent matter? Does using certain words definitively make you racist?
Isaac and Charles criticize the wording of the tweet, and Josh chastises Charles for going after another comedian's jokes. Adi stresses the importance of context on Twitter, a concept with which Josh disagrees.
Also discussed: the Bow Wow Challenge and Adi's Aziz Ansari impression.
Continuing directly from Part 1, Josh and Isaac question why it's a problem to ask someone where they're from, which Adi and Charles attempt to answer. Josh suggests the media's focus on race is part of the reason it comes up so much. Isaac is accused of "getting wound up" by Charles, and later has an oppression-off with Adi.
Also discussed: does everyone have racist thoughts? Is it always better to be white in America? Has Dave of Kentucky's view of Adi improved?
Stay tuned for Part 3...

On this episode: Josh describes why he was unhappy with NAHF's episode about his situation while Isaac and Charles explain their reasoning. Twitter's terms and conditions are discussed, as well as the method by which they make you remove tweets. Isaac wants to establish a definition of racism. Josh and Adi both describe ways the entertainment business forces you to alter yourself.

To be continued in future episodes!
Former educator Stephen Brock makes his first guest appearance on the show to lend his expertise to the topic of school shootings and their origins. Stephen thinks it's a symptom of a larger issue with boys and masculinity. Related issues: Why aren't inner city schools plagued with mass shootings? Why has the Virginia Tech shooter been ignored? Would a national draft provide a sense of purpose and help eradicate these occurrences?
Also: whether serial killers are the indie films of murder, why Stephen thinks the Obama administration were "the Brunch Years", and Isaac mocks Charles for referencing nonexistent rappers that turn out to be real.
A quick discussion about some of the elements of the incel phenomenon with Sam Bivins and Matthew Robinson once again joining Isaac and Charles. Topics discussed: the grossness of rating people on a scale, why there are no gay incels, and how the prism of ideology disrtorts the discussion.
The Misandry Bubble: http://www.singularity2050.com/2010/01/the-misandry-bubble.html
It's time to explore the Intellectual Dark Web with guests Sam Bivins and Matthew Robinson! Together everyone examines the Bari Weiss article about the IDW (https://www.nytimes.com/2018/05/08/opinion/intellectual-dark-web.html) and the Nellie Bowles article about Jordan Peterson (https://www.nytimes.com/2018/05/18/style/jordan-peterson-12-rules-for-life.html). Much fun is had mocking the terrible photography and overall pretentiousness of both articles. Debated: Is Sam Harris actually on the right? What is wrong with being right wing? And what is actually on the real intellectual dark web?
Also discussed: Matthew Robinson's standup characters and hatred from the MDE subreddit, listener suggestions for a new soundboard, the fact that Eric Weinstein is Peter Thiel's henchman, and how Jordan Peterson is jumping the shark!

Then Isaac, Charles, and Matthew discuss a situation involving friend of the show Josh Denny, who said something that got himself in the midst of a Twitter dogpile over some ill-advised tweets and the resultant uproar.
It's the final episode of the resiDANce as soon-to-be-gone comedian Dan D'Aprile joins Charles and Isaac one last time for a hard look at a hot button topic: jury duty. Charles tells a story about his experience on a jury panel in an LA criminal court and warns what happens when everyone treats jury duty like a nuisance instead of an obligation.
Also discussed: time limited relationships, Charles lying about having a wife in order to avoid purchasing furniture, and the nepotism of the entertainment business.
Check out Dan on Twitter (@DanDaprile) and Instagram (@DannyDaprile)!
